Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham has announced that he plans to hold a vote to subpoena top Obama regime officials next month.
With Obamagate starting to heat up and acting Director Of National Intelligence Richard Grenell continuing to declassify documents that reveal the extent of involvement by those officials in the coup against President Trump, it could be an interesting summer.
On Monday the South Carolina Republican issued a press release stating his intent to exercise oversight over the abuse of the FISA process during the Crossfire Hurricane operation to frame Trump as a Russian agent.
It is an important first step in a process that may ultimately hold those who abused their power to conduct surveillance on the Trump team which they sought to entrap, frame and railroad accountable for their misdeeds.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) announced Monday evening that his panel will vote June 4 on a subpoena authorization to review documents and communications and solicit testimony from an array of senior Obama-era officials, including former FBI Director James Comey.
Graham announced in a press release that the subpoena vote will take place as part of his panel’s investigation into “FISA abuse” and the FBI probe “Crossfire Hurricane,” which investigated contacts between Trump advisers and Russian officials during the 2016 presidential campaign.
The subpoenas will cover “documents, communications and testimony from witnesses” including Comey, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper and former CIA Director John Brennan.
Under Senate Judiciary Committee rules, the chairman cannot unilaterally issue a subpoena and must either receive the consent of the ranking member, in this case Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), or secure a majority committee vote.
Senator Graham has come under fire for not backing up his tough talk with action and has done little to get to the bottom of things since taking over the Judiciary Committee in 2018.
Some of his harshest criticism has come from President Trump, who was the victim of the Obama gang’s anti-American activities.
For good measure, on Wednesday Graham sent a letter to Grenell and Attorney General William Barr requesting specific information on the unmasking of members of the Trump campaign and transition team.
